Jim Thome card #245 2001 Bowman's Best #11

  • Love how this card scanned.  The gold really jumps out at you.  I also like the bulls eye effect on the left hand side of the card, it looks great to me.
  • Since I last talked about the number of scans on the Trading Card Database (which was within the last few days), the number has jumped about 12,000.  A long way to go to hit 3 million, but I helped a little more today with this card.
  • No bio on the back:  The back actually lists 3 pitchers who Jim had good career numbers against (at the time).  Bobby Witt was the one that jumped out at me; Jim at the time was 10 for 24 against Witt with 6 HR and 16 RBI.
